Options For Web Searching

Using the open web for legal research isn’t always the best idea, especially if you are using Google. Millions and millions of often irrelevant results and paid advertising, make for a time-consuming endeavor.

A great article on some new options was recently published in the Legal Technology section of law.com (Reading the Future of Web Search). Two law-related search engines that aren’t mentioned in the article, but should have been are Westlaw WebPlus (only available when logged onto Westlaw) and LexisWeb (currently in a free beta). Both of these search engines offer many of the advantages mentioned in the article, but with a focus on the legal resources. Perhaps this is the future of web search for lawyers.
